The main use for essential oils in the bathroom is to clear bacteria and viruses. Use a synergistic blend of 5 drops bergamot, 10 drops lavender, 5 drops cinnamon, 10 drops lemon, and 10 drops citronella essential oils combined with 2 1/2 cups water in a spray bottle to wipe all bathroom surfaces. This combination will kill germs and give the entire bathroom a wonderful fragrance.
Another great way to scent the bathroom is with an essential oil diffuser. It is not safe to use an electric diffuser in the bathroom so be sure to use a candle heated one. The flicker of a candle in a warm bathroom makes that relaxing bath even better. You can use the same blend above for the diffuser (without water) or try this one: 5 drops oregano, 10 drops sage, 10 drops thyme, and 20 drops lemon. To keep the bathroom smelling fresh, put two to four drops of this blend on the cardboard ring inside your toilet paper roll. The oil blend is soaked into the cardboard and releases the aroma to keep the area fragrant.
